Prepping and Celebrating Another Thanksgiving.

Our Location today is Deming, New Mexico, U.S.A. 

First and Foremost, we hope all our American readers, followers and their families had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day. 

The way I slept last night was awful; the only way I got any sleep at all was to sleep until nearly 8:30 MST this morning. Being able to sleep later has been beneficial to Kathy in helping to fight her Sinus Infection. Each day she has been noticing a slight improvement and this has been happening without the use of Antibiotics. 

Since we were invited to participate in the Thanksgiving Day Celebration at Dream Catcher RV Park it meant that I wasn’t going outside to work on the trailer today. After doing our usual inside chores Kathy and I had something totally different to work on, our contribution to this afternoon’s feast.  
"A Little Taste Of Heaven"
With the “L” shaped island in our trailer we set up a production line. Kathy busied herself lightly frying up Won Ton Wrappers in Vegetable Oil. When they were cooked, she’d place them on a Paper Towel covered Cookie Sheet to soak off the oil and hand them over to me. My job was to Lightly Dust them on both sides with Confectioners Icing Sugar, tap off the excess and pile them neatly in an Aluminium Foil Roaster. We spent nearly two hours doing Eighty of these delicacies. Our Friend Rick Cochrane called them “A Little Taste of Heaven” so that is what we named them. 

The Flyer for the Celebration showed the feast was slated to start at 3:00 in the afternoon so we shared a sandwich to tied us over. We had barely finished that when there was a knock on our door. It was Barb who we had met the other night saying the Flyers were wrong and the meal was at 2:00 instead. That meant it was time to get ready to go. 
Don and Barb at Taco Tuesday. No Picture today.
Too busy talking and eating.
We arrived at 1:45 and the hall was half full as were the food tables. Within ten minutes the place was packed and the food tables filled. The Park supplied the Turkey and Ham and Non-Alcoholic Beverages for two dollars a person and the guest brought the sides. We had the chance to sit with Don and Barb again and enjoyed another visit. We had told them about the Adobe Deli on Tuesday and they had visited it yesterday.  
Half the tables empty as they were getting their food.
After a brief Thank You to the Volunteers who had cooked the meats and decorated the hall, they Thanked everyone for bringing in their contributions and then Grace was given for the meal. They called table numbers from a hat and of the ten tables our table was called second. The meats were served by portion but the rest you chose yourself. In order to taste as many of these dishes as possible the most I took was a two-tablespoon serving of anything and I still couldn’t sample it all. After everyone had been served the call went out for seconds. Both Kathy and I each had a single plate of food along with a small plate from the Dessert Table not wanting to over stuff ourselves. By 4:00 everyone started pitching in to clean up before heading back to their RVs. 
There are Ten things on my plate not counting the two meats.
Not wanting to get into anything too serious at that late hour in the afternoon and not wanting to lose time on the wiring tomorrow we had to find a small chore to fill the void. I gathered the laundry and headed to the Park Laundry Room. I had the place to myself and managed to get our four loads of laundry done uninterrupted. 

Tomorrow is our last day here so we both have lots to get done. We’ll be back again in the future because we like the Park and to see the sights that we missed this time. Thanks for following along and feel free to leave a comment. Be Safe and Enjoy! 

It’s about time.

  1. I think it is so wonderful when campgrounds provide this sort of celebration for their campers. Looks like a super spread.
    Keep getting better Kathy.
